Spaghetti and Meatballs--nearly everyone's favorite "Italian" dish--is truly international fare. Spaghetti originated in the Orient, meatballs in the Middle East, tomato sauce in Mexico, and the essential Parmesan cheese really does come from Italy--it has been produced in the city of Parma for more than 800 years!
